Baking Cookies Today!
I was given a cookbook for Christmas when I was 3 years old by my Grammie. At the time it didn't really seem to be an appropriate gift for a 3 year old, but I'm sure appreciative of it now! It's a great Betty Crocker cookbook called, "The Cooky Book".
There are a lot of yummy looking pictures throughout that I've been wanting to try & I must admit I've only made a handfull of the recipes to date.
Today I'm making the first recipe listed... chocolate drop cookies.
I didn't have chocloate squares, so used Hershey's coccoa powder instead & the dough smelled so good & super chocolatey!
When mixing the dough, I changed it up a bit & omitted the nuts & added coconut instead! I can't wait to see how they turn out & will keep y'all updated on what my little taste testers think of them!
I'm going to try every recipe in this book! Doesn't that sound like a sweet adventure to have? It will be like "Julie vs. Julia" only it's "June vs. Betty Crocker"!
I love cookies more than French cuisine, so it's going to be wicked fun!
If baking is not your cup of tea, you can always cruise on over to etsy & see what's cooking there! Here are a few treats that caught my eye this morning!
